    while the article is in German language, at theb ottom there are engl;ish language links.
    but click through the top line of photos, still black and white, the first subway constructions, interieur of the wagons and the like.
    also interesting the bottom photo line. stations from around the world.
    very interesting one picture -no pants day-

    I have a first cousin who got a pants leg caught at the base of one and then it started trying to eat his leg. This was many moons ago. Hadn't thought about that accident until you made this post.
